July Smalls

I’ve gone for a flowery theme this month with my cross-stitch smalls display with two fairly recent makes, Scatter Sunshine and Be Nice.

The little forget me not one at the front is a cross-stitch I did probably about 30 years ago, I finally made it up a couple of years ago. The forget-m-not box is a design by Nutmeg Designs up in Reeth in Swaledale. The lovely poppy humbug is a Faby Reilly design. The little round cottage pin cushion is from a pattern in an old Inspirations magasine, another one I probably made over twenty years ago!

I might do a bees theme next month, or maybe birds…any preference?

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Lovely little stitches. Can you tell me the name of the pillow with “acorn” and “oak” on it? It’s especially cute. Thanks.

      Hi Ruth, it’s a kit I bought on a destash site, copyright was 2001 so it’s probably not still available, It’s called Acorn Sampler by Elizabeth Designs. It is lovely 🙂
